New Whimsical Paintings and An Idea

Here are some new Alice in Wonderland paintings. The first one is "Alice" and the second one is "Dinah"(her little kitty). I was going for a somewhat dark-Tim Burton feel with the color palette, Alice's dark eye makeup, and, of course, the black-and-white stripes on the sides. These paintings go great as a pair and will be up on Ebay today.

I had this idea one day to put my art on a useful item, that people could always carry with them. These are little credit card wallets. I printed my artwork on canvas sheets and attached them, along with different patterned fabric, to the outside. I used mod podge as a protectant coat over the outside. It gives the wallets a sheen, but also makes them stiff and durable. The wallets also have stitching detail around the artwork just for fun.
They can hold your cards (with pockets on each side), a photo (a clear pocket on one side), and they are a perfect size for holding your business cards. You could even use them as a gift card holder for someone.
These wallets will also be listed on Ebay later today.
